Nikon D40 is certainly an entry level of DSLR that's pretty good for some tight budget buyer like me. I have a deep thought of several DCs weeks ago. Like Canon G7, Pentax K100D and Nikon D40. But considering that, Nikon is a great brand and it is anyhow a DSLR (I know it is an entry level). It looks Professional when you grap it. Take a picture yourself in front of a mirror. That looks smart !
The so called "legit reseller" of bhphotovideo.com also sells gray market products that do NOT come with factory warranty, I would try to avoid them and buy from Amazon.com
